Denim mill Isko has launched a Bluesign-approved fabric that meets the standard’s rigorous criteria ensuring it’s sustainably produced without hazardous chemicals. The Bluesign System aims to remove harmful substances from the beginning of the manufacturing process and establishes and monitors standards for safer production.
The mill entered the partnership in June 2020 with an above-average rating from the Bluesign Company Assessment, demonstrating its longstanding commitment to sustainability. Isko has received achievements from Oeko-Tex, Textile Exchange, SAC, ZDHC and EU Ecolabel.
Most recently, it updated its recycled materials collection, Light on the Land, for better transparency. All of the fabrics used in the collection were carefully selected from Isko’s R-Two platform, which uses a mixture of reused cotton and recycled fibers.
The Bluesign System has recently undergone updates as well, and in February it announced the revision of all of its chemical substance lists to incorporate the latest scientific knowledge on toxicological and ecological profile of substances, new legal classification of chemical substances, new legal consumer safety limits, revised risk assessments based on the Bluesign Criteria for chemical assessment, etc.
